Retaining the Job

Two high-profile members of Congress are fighting to keep their jobs this morning despite numerous allegations of sexual misconduct.

 

Senator Al Franken and Congressman John Conyers are both trying to survive the allegations against them and keep their jobs. Minnesota Senator Franken is hoping for a comeback after a number of women have come forward accusing him of groping, or in one instance, forcibly kissing them. Michigan Congressman John Conyers is facing his own allegations of sexual harassment from former staffers. He has stepped down from his leading role on the House Judiciary Committee, but he’s hoping to save his career. As all of this drama plays out, the House is expected to vote this week on mandatory anti-sexual harassment training for all of its members.
